Is it completely booked everywhere on that day? (I'm sorry I can't remember which day it is exactly) Sometimes you can ask at the desk of your hotel (concierge) each morning and they can get you in too.
My birthday is the 24th (a Wednesday). I haven't checked every restaurant for that day, just places I'd like to eat at. If I don't run across any cancellations, I'll definately be asking the concierge!!!

Ohana's at the Poly
Any boardwalk restaurant
Japan's hibachi grill
Jiko or Boma at AKL

If anything, see if you can ask for some places that aren't booked up! good luck!
Of my definate ADR's, I've only ever eaten at Sci-Fi, so I am trying new things! I've heard wonderful things about R&C, so I'm pretty excited. I've never eaten at LeCellier, so that's why I'm trying to hard to get in there!

I'm pretty satisfied with what we have. I'm really looking forward to checking out the Poly and BC while we're eating there. The BC is my dream resort!!!!

I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Your ADR's look great. Hopefully you will be able to get some of the restaurants that you weren't able to. Le Cellier seems to have become so popular, everyone has that one on their list. I would even try when you get there to just go to the restaurant and ask if they have any room because people cancel all the time.

Thanks! If I can't get LeCellier before we leave, I'm definately going to walk by and see if they have any openings as often as I can!

Hi Meghan! I'm joining in. I just read your entire PTR and TR from your January trip! So great. Your family is precious. Maddie looks just like you, and her smile was absolutely adorable in all of your pictures from the winter!! You could tell she was just on cloud 9 the whole time! I can't wait to follow this PTR and eventually TR too!

I have read on some trip reports that Teppon Edo at Epcot actually has better steak than Le Cellier, so maybe give that a look at?

There was some availability there but my heart is set on LeCellier! It's more about the cheddar cheese soup, pretzel bread and the desserts!!!!!

I hear you on the soup, pretzel bread and desserts! It's the main reason we go to Le Cellier too! We had similar trouble booking a ressie there but I finally got a lunch booking. Not as good as supper but I'm just happy we've got one. I hope you have some luck with a cancellation!

Meghan I just found your PTR! What a great birthday trip!

I will be missing you by 2 weeks. I am headed for a girls trip in early June. I wasn't able to get my ADRs either. I was looking for Ohana but had to settle for Kona. I might just check out the sushi bar there instead of eating at Kona.

Can't wait to hear about the itinerary!!

The itinerary is still being worked out. We're going to have hoppers, so now I just have to figure it all out!
